ARTWORK by JoJo | Let it Shine

There is so much going on in our world. 
I just want to escape from reality, but then... I realize I am called to be a LIGHT

Our kiddo's name means "Bringer of Light"
It is something we take to heart and try to live out daily. 
I am human. I fail... all the time. 
But, I hope and pray I can be a light to others.

I am extremely thankful for this medium called art. 
It enables me to express myself in times I do not have words. 

This piece is entitled "This Little Light of Mine"

The darkness (black) is OVERCOME and made beautiful 
by all the colorful hearts in this wonderful world.

Acrylic on 10"x10" Canvas Board Framed in Gold | This Little Light of Mine | Available

ARTWORK by JOJO: Giving Back

I am thrilled to be participating with a phenomenal group of artists at the upcoming 
on July 27th!

Acrylic on 36" x 36" Canvas | Overjoyed | Available at Summer Colors - An Art Auction

"Summer Colors - An Art Auction, now in its ninth year, was an idea born out of passion for both art and the patients of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC). Founded in 2009 by Jenny and Loren Koziol and Jill and Dupree Scovell, this art auction raises awareness about the hospital, while also exposing the Dallas community to up and coming local artists. To date, Summer Colors - An Art Auction has raised more than $84,000 for the hospital.

Each year, local artists donate original pieces of art to be featured in the auction, with all the proceeds benefiting Scottish Rite Hospital."

I would love to see you there!
